Sweet Pea


I have been on a button kick lately! I have several more cards to share later using buttons! This is the first one I wanted to share. I had planned to post a card that I made last night, for the CPS challenge, but it is raining and too dark outside to take the picture. So.... here is my little 3x3 sweet pea.

Since the release of the new PTI set, Everyday Button Bits, I have been digging through my other stamps to see where I could use buttons. I thought this would make a cute new baby girl card!

Anyway.... I want to say "Thank you" to all of you who left suggestions on how I could use my loved grid paper! Seems that I am not as weird as I thought! :) Or... all of you are weird too! :) I got some great suggestions and now I feel okay about hanging onto it for a while and using it for something.

Hope you all are having a great Wednesday! Carver is napping right now and we are going to a birthday party for my adorable nephew, Rex, tonight! It is going to be at Pump It Up! Rex had a party there last year but Carver was a little too young to get into it. I am anxious to see how he does tonight. I think he is going to have a great time and hopefully come home worn out and ready for bed! Ha...

Supplies:
Stamps - Green Thumb (PTI)
Paper - Sweet Blush, Polka Dot Parade, Ripe Avocado Bitty Box, White (all PTI)
Ink - Ripe Avocado, True Black, Chai Tea Dye (all PTI)
Other - Classic Square and Scallop Square Nestabilities, Raspberry Fizz buttons (PTI)

Oh Kelley - this is the greatest!!! I'm loving buttons so much too - in fact my PTI Everyday Button Bits arrived today....yahoo!!! I love your idea and may have to use it someday :)

thanks so much for the congratulations!! I've been so busy over the past few days and felt exhausted until I read my email which forwards all of my comments. That really rejuvenated me!!

Enjoy Rex's party & I hope Carter enjoys himself out :)

Very cute idea! I love it! Maybe I need to get my stamps out and see if they would go good with buttons! Thanks for the inspiration! And THANK YOU so much for the blog award, (sorry it took so long). It is so nice to have other ladies that enjoy the same thing! :)
